Hi there. I'm Liz, AKA Potato. I draw things and sometimes I even get around to scanning them. I also never outgrew playing dress-up.

Annie Leonhardt in palette 74, as per Ubastyyat’s request.
I think I’m getting the hang of Sai.  Gonna keep at it.

ubastyyat asked:

Annie with palette 74, or Sayaka & 58

One down, lots to go.  I would have started these earlier but I left my tablet pen at home when I went to my mom’s house.  I’ll be doing these out of order, so don’t worry if I don’t post yours right away.

Done in PaintTool Sai- I’m trying to learn to paint with it, so these will all be pretty rough and experimental.  I still want to do Annie as well!

If 18 or 20 palettes wasn’t enough, I present to you: my 100 Palette Challenge! This is a collection of some of my favourite palettes from color-palettes and Adobe Kuler and I thought it would be really fun to have a huge variety of palettes to chose from
If you would like to participate in this challenge, I ask that you DO NOT repost this anywhere else, including deviantART; please REBLOG this instead! I have the challenge uploaded to deviantART as well, so please check it out there if you want to do it on deviantART!

All right, I’m way out of practice on the digital front and I’ve always liked working with limited palettes.  Hit me up, Tumblies!
Things that I’m into include Marvel, Image Comics, Touhou Project, Madoka Magica, Attack on Titan, HTTYD, Fullmetal Alchemist…uhm…well, lots of stuff.  I’m open to anything, just please include the series that the character is from so I can google refs if necessary.  
ETA: If you’re one of those poor unfortunate souls who’s known me long enough to be familiar with my Original Characters Do Not Steal, I’m more than game to draw those idiots too.

Why did no one tell me these existed?

I am staggered no one has rebooted Animorphs yet.

Was that one chick seriously able to turn into a starfish?  As in the slow-moving, brainless echinoderm whose only really noteworthy feature is being able to flip its stomach inside out?

If I was her, I’d want my money back.

Studies of lilies in the pond at the DeYoung Museum, San Francisco. 30min each.

I’ve come to realize that I’m much too dependent on line, which makes my coloring and rendering suffer, so I’m practicing emphasizing tone and forms rather than contours.
